I am trying to use SurfaceView for an app. But I need to add buttons the
canvas as well. Not able to gather much from Android.developer site. Can
anybody post if they have done it or have some ideas ?

Question about Button and SurfaceView

Step #1: Define a RelativeLayout.

Step #2: Put the SurfaceView as a child of the RelativeLayout.

Step #3: Put the Button as a *later* child of the RelativeLayout.

This will cause the Button to appear to "float" on the SurfaceView. See
this project for an example:

1. Interface Inconsistency

I'm not entirely certain whether it's android or HTC Sense but one
thing I find that is wrong with my android phone is that to dismiss a
call I have to flick the screen upwards.  However to dismiss an
Outlook calendar event I have to flick it downwards.

Only a minor niggle but when multitasking I find it a distraction!
